via the band's own Silver Arrow label and Megaforce Records. A second album, titled ...Until The Freeze, will be given away for free exclusively through a unique download code included in Before The Frost...

Before the Frost...features 11 new unreleased Black Crowes' studio songs. The free album ...Until The Freeze has 8 new original Black Crowes' studio songs plus a cover version of the Stephen Stills classic "So Many Times."
Before the Frost..., and its corresponding free album ...Until The Freeze, were recorded over a series of five nights at Levon Helm Studios. Although both are studio albums, all the new material was performed and recorded in front of an intimate audience of the band s fans.
Chris Robinson conceived the innovative concept of Before the Frost...Until The Freeze:
I think we fulfilled a musical commitment to continue on the golden road of artistic independence. Approaching 20 years into our careers, we still are ambitious enough to push ourselves to create somethin g unique that we have never done before.
As The Black Crowes approach the upcoming 20th anniversary of their release of one of rock s most influential records, Shake Your Money Maker, which produced such hits as Jealous Again, She Talks To Angels and Hard to Handle, they are time and again hailed as one of Rock and Roll s best live acts.
...Until The Freeze tracklisting:
The Shady Grove

I could analyze this record (yeah, I still call 'em records) until I put you to sleep here, but that would not get the job done. The job is to get you to listen to this puppy right now, or real soon.
Like all Black Crowes' music, this thing rocks. "Kept My Soul" is as hard and soulful as anything this band has ever done, and that's sayin' something. But there are whole other worlds of creativity happening herein. "Greenhorn" is a beautiful song with a fantastic lyric that sounds, to my ears, like something by Sondheim. That's a compliment, Captain. "What Is Home?"
is another lovely tune in a similar vein. But what's "I Ain't Hiding" but, believe it or not, a disco-meets-down-home rocker with a Rod Stewart feel? And on and on...this set has surprises in store at every turn, even while wrapped in an Americana sonic package with plenty of acoustic ribbons to keep everything feeling real.
Unlike most new music, this doesn't ever smell like product. "Before the Frost...After the Freeze" is the single finest pop record I've heard in about ten years. The Robinson Brothers have never sounded better in their respective vocal and guitar roles. The songs are literate and meaningful. Every moment makes sense and sounds right.
I'm on my tenth listening right now, and it's only getting better, just the way real classics do.

Occasionally you find those bands/artists that you like everything they've ever done and The Black Crowes fall into that category for me.Published 5 months ago by RdMc57

Good Morning Captain is pretty good. Been A Long Time's stilted, chopped rhythm and lyrical nonsense is not quite mitigated by a decent guitar riff in the fourth quarter. Read morePublished 12 months ago by frank camp

but this is a pretty solid CD. Great sound, songs and lyrics and of course some butt-kicking riffs along the way.Published on December 31, 2013 by Amazon Customer
I love the Crowes, and there is excellent music on this album. I just miss the energy of their more rocking songs. Great album, great music, wanted a bit more power.Published on October 11, 2013 by Casey O'Donnell
